14-year-old hunter survives night in 4-degree weather after becoming separated from friend

A 14-year-old boy who became separated from a friend on a northern Utah hunting trip was found safe Sunday after spending the night in 4-degree weather.

The boy was taken to the hospital after he called 911 from a landline just before 6 a.m. Sunday at the Anteploe Island Causeway in Syracuse, Fox 13 in Salt Lake City reports.

“The juvenile had somehow made his way to that location and was calling for help,” the Weber County Sheriff’s Office said in a new release. “It was reported he appeared confused and was somewhat delusional.”

His condition is unknown at this time, the station reported.

The boy and his friend had gone hunting in the marshes of Ogden Bay in Hooper around 2 a.m. Saturday.

Around 9 p.m. Saturday the friend notified authorities that they had become separated.

As searchers arrived on the scene the missing boy called 911 a couple of times on his cellphone but it appeared he was disoriented, the sheriff’s office said.

Several agencies responded to assist in the search for the boy, Fox 13 reported.
